The Vienna Secession building was designed for an avant-garde group of artists as a comprehensive work of sculpture, architecture, painting and music, a "temple" to art. The motto above the entrance reads "Der Zeit ihre Kunst. Der Kunst ihre Freiheit." (To the Age its Art. To Art its Freedom). Many among the group of artists are associated with Jugendstil, the German variant of Art Nouveau.
